I listen to music probably 80% of my day, including when I am sleeping! THIS is my brain on music... like actually.
  1. β€’
    It brings me back to a memory / feeling / place / time / vibe - sometimes intentionally oftentimes not, and I love that
  2. β€’
    It moves me - emotionally and literally in the physical sense
    (I'm like a music activated machine human also known as a dancer... I think there's a song about that)
  3. β€’
    It's meditative (for real... even the dance tunes.... maybe especially the dance tunes)
  4. β€’
    Alternatively it's mentally stimulating and I can work jam on it / it can motivate and give me the energy I need to focus and get stuff done
  5. β€’
    My friends made the music and it makes me feel like I'm with them even when I'm not

  13. β€’
    It wakes me up
    I listen to the same song every single day for months, to start my day off with a certain vibe or intention
  14. β€’
    I honestly really love trying to isolate the instrumentals when listening - percussion, bass, etc. vibing with each layer and then appreciating it all together
  15. β€’
    It can set the mood
  16. β€’
    You can make a playlist for so many things and clearly I like the structure of a thematic list

    People send me songs to listen to
  18. β€’
    It creates a mental timestamp
  19. β€’
    New releases
  20. β€’
    It's a former lover's band and I feel like being a little bit masochistic

    It gives me life
